2014 HOPP Final Rule Expected to Have Dramatic Consequences on U.S. Wound Management Market

Share Article

In 2014, the skin substitute market will be significantly affected following the 2014 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment (HOPP) Final Rule especially when existing codes will expire for many major manufacturers in 2015, reports iData Research in the new U.S. Wound and Tissue Management market report.

The skin substitutes market account for the majority of the interactive dressings market and will be significantly affected in the 2014 HOPP Final Rule

According to a new report by iData Research (http://www.idataresearch.com), the leading global authority in medical device market research, the U.S. Wound Management Market is expected to grow to over $10 billion by 2020. Growth will be driven by the introduction of new products that will be easier to use. However, this will be hindered by changes to reimbursement, specific to the U.S. interactive dressings market. The interactive dressings market is further segmented into collagen dressings and skin substitutes.

“The skin substitutes market account for the majority of the interactive dressings market and will be significantly affected in the 2014 HOPP Final Rule, “says Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData, “codes for many major manufacturers will expire in 2015.”

Revived interest in combination collagen dressings is expected to drive the collagen market. However, growth is expected to be hindered by the recent changes in the Pricing Data Analysis and Coding (PDAC) as well as Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS). This change has resulted in the removal of all collagen dressings which contain less than 90% of collagen from the collagen reimbursement codes.

Competitors leading the U.S. interactive dressings market include Organogenesis with their Apligraf®, Systagenix, Smith & Nephew, MiMedx and Osiris.
